Starring: Belinda Effah, Ozzy Agu, Lota Chukwu

A young woman resorts to prostitution to raise money but her decision later stands to jeopardize her relationship with the man of her dreams.

Chika (Lota Chukwu) had to drop out of school in order to work because her father was hospitalized and his fees were mounting. At the advice of a friend, she joined an “escort” service which she believed to be a lucrative business for fast cash.

Her father passed away but she continued turning tricks until the answer to her troubles came in the form of a wealthy man. At first she resisted love but after some persistence she later caved to the desire for a serious relationship.

Just when things started to look up, the disapproval of her fiance’s well-to-do family and the exposure of her “night job” threatened the success of their union.

Let’s Talk. Yet another bout with prostitution but this time the women were referred to as “escorts.” The lead character’s excuse was to pay her father’s expenses but she continued to hook up with men even after he died which, made no sense since she initially felt the business was beneath her.

As life would have it, the man of her dreams found out about her shady career and instead of shunning her, he still wanted to marry her. This was a significant part of the story because although it was gracious of her boyfriend to disregard her past, it was also unlikely in terms of real life.

The story was made up of two overused themes – 1) prostitution where boyfriend finds out and 2) the storyline where parents disapprove of their children’s spouse. (Yawn…) It then ventured into social status and went downhill from there.

There was nothing remotely interesting about this movie. The story was drab and so were the characters. Making matters worse was its’ ambiguous conclusion. I’m not sure what to make of the ending other than chalking up the entire movie to fantasy.

Performances? B-

Sound and video quality were satisfactory.

Writer, Uduak Isong Oguamanam has a library of better movies. This one was just more African movie fluff. EJECT

    You absolutely are a sad person. You have no clue what a good movie is. This movie was wonderful, minus the fake hair and accents in a few scenes. If you did not see the good in this film, then I worry about your taste in general.

      Hey NSA,

      The reason I started this website was due to conversations I would have with my friends about films. It always amazes me how movies affect people so differently. I assure you that there’s no need to worry about my taste. We’re all entitled to our opinions about clothes, wine, cars, and yes, movies. What we choose defines who we are and quite frankly we don’t always have to agree. Calling someone “sad” because they disagree with you is unnecessary. Obviously, we have contrasting definitions of what a “good” movie is. Somehow you saw value but I came away unimpressed. I stand by my feelings and I thank you for sharing yours.

  • I really loved this movie… Didn’t like the ending tho.

  • Kemi Sharpe

    Movie was a complete waste of my time.i must share the same taste in movies with the reviewer because I only looked at the review after watching the movie and was glad to see the review.i watched it on the recommendation from another website.

    • TalkAfricanMovies

      Hi Kemi, unfortunately the industry seems to be about quantity and not quality. They churn out tons of movies every week and most are not good…like this one.

  • Yemmy

    I agree with the review! The end particularly pissed me off! Uduak didn’t get it right with this one!!!!

    • TalkAfricanMovies

      Yemmy, good movies are few and far between.

  • Beatrice Ojoka

    does the movie has part 2( fine gilr)

    • TalkAfricanMovies

      Not that I know of.


    The movie is intresting but won’t be nice if it ended there. The suspense is there for part two, let the producer take it up from there.

  • Debby

    Please I want to be sure the movie didn’t end where chika went to meet Williams at the hotel as an escort……haba,no o o coz I have been itching to know what happened next. I hope fine girl has part 2

    • TalkAfricanMovies

      Hey Debby, honestly, I don’t remember the details. So sorry. It was an easily forgettable movie & there’s no chance I’ll ever watch it again. I don’t know of a part 2. What I watched was labeled “Full Story.”

  • cicy

    This is one of the best Ive watched honestly😃very good image quality..very unique story ..honestly at a point I thought I was actually watching a black American telemundo😍…the ending though😒I really want a part 2😢

    • TalkAfricanMovies

      Hi Cicy, I think the vague ending was intentional. I haven’t seen a part 2.

  • D K

    I have to agree. The movie ending left me frustrated. Not a nice cliffhanger. Do they or don’t they??

    • TalkAfricanMovies

      DK, we’ll probably never know.

  • Dolapo

    Beautiful movie loved every moment of it especially the love story reminded me of Pretty Woman the movie.

    • TalkAfricanMovies

      Hey Dolapo, I didn’t see any similarities to Pretty Woman at all but I’m happy you enjoyed the movie. It’s always good to come away from a movie feeling satisfied. Best Regards.

  • Racheal

    I totally agree with the review, but still, I like the movie, in spite of that I demand an apology for the way the movie ended, it’s totally offensive.

    • TalkAfricanMovies

      Rachel, you are too funny! Yes,, most people agree that the ending was a huge disappointment. Oh well…

  • chioma Esther

    can’t believe DAT it just ended at the hotel
    with william.
    it should have a continuation, cos am eager to know if they later got married or they separated.

    • TalkAfricanMovies

      Hey Chioma, maybe they’ll be a sequel. Who knows..

  • chioma Esther

    it should be a seasonal movie if possible cos their acting was so real.
